Training with GPS just got easier. This is what makes the Garmin Edge 200 so alluring. It uses cutting edge tech to allow you to pretty much just turn on the computer and go, which should make it as popular with technophobes as it will be with technophiles.

There is no transmitter to mount on your fork or stays. There are no magnets. There is no heart rate monitor. So long as you're moving and the 200 has found satellites, you'll have speed. So long as you have the timer running, you have a recording cycling computer and GPS unit. This way, you know what you're doing now, and you can save it for later. The 200 can be uploaded into Garmin's native Training Center application and Connect training and social media website. The 200 can be uploaded into Map My Ride, Strava, Training Peaks, and WKO+ as well -- anything that can read a .fit file.

The 200 probably looks familiar to you. It should. The case has the same exact dimensions as the popular and more expensive Garmin Edge 500, though since we're talking simple, the takeaway should be that it is small enough to sit Garmin Edge 200 Detailunobtrusively atop your stem or handlebars. Like the 500, it also has four buttons in the same layout and the same simple, transferable, mounting system. It's a bit shinier, has fewer features, and can't be upgraded to pick up ANT+ signals from a heart rate monitor transmitter, a speed transmitter, or a power transmitter. If you ride a stationary trainer, the only metric that will work is time.

But because it is stripped down, you have a unit that is not only a great price, but is incredibly simple and straightforward. There is one live data screen that can't be customized (aka can't messed up by an inquisitive friend or kid). On it you will see speed at the top, then distance, then time, and a bottom readout that can toggle between average speed, total ascent and calories. There is a setup screen that gives you four choices: courses, ride, history, and settings. You can recall previous rides to compete against previous rides or just retrace the ride, and you can have the unit direct you back to the start of the ride if you find yourself getting lost on the way. You can also set intervals for time, distance, or location and have the 200 tell you how far you have to go.

As simple as it is, there are some extra features built in for those who want a little more. If you input your body data, the 200 will use an algorithm to roughly compute how many calories you're burning on the ride. If you have an account with Garmin Connect (it's free), you can create or download courses and then put those on the 200 so you can ride them.

The Garmin Edge 200 comes in a box with the unit itself, two bike mounts, an alternating current charger, a USB cable for both connecting to a computer and to power, and user manuals. The unit is 1.9in long by 2.7in wide and 0.8in thick (4.8 x 6.9 x 2.1 cm), with a screen size of 1.2in by 1.4in (3.0 x 3.7 cm). There is a backlight for night and low-light riding. The unit stores up to 130 hours of ride data. The battery should burn for up to 14 hours between charges. The color is Black.

Unanswered Question

I received the Edge 200 as a gift and love it for outdoors...Could someone direct me to an attachment I could buy so it could read indoors (on a trainer)? Thanks!

good for tracking, bad for strava nerdz

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

(Left) bike park laps recorded with the Garmin Edge 200. (Right) bike park laps recorded with an android phone + strava app

I bought this so I could actually have some semblance of knowledge about how far I'd ridden on longer rides, time elapsed, average speed etc (basically all the fun things you'd want a cycling computer for, and what I'd have to stop and get my phone out of my backpack to find out). The Edge 200 is pretty good for all of those things - it's just spotty in the woods sometimes, and records waay rougher GPS data than my phone does. When I use it on rides with friends who are Strava-ing on their phones, it almost always records hundreds (sometimes even a thousand) less feet of elevation gain than my buddies - what the hell.

For what it is (the lowest-end Garmin model) it's pretty handy. I've never had it run out of battery on me, and normally charge up it via USB whenever I plug it in to sync my rides. Just wish the GPS was a little more fine-grain.. but I guess that's what the fancier models are for.

Worked great...until entering the forest

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The unit acquired a satellite right away and worked great on the open road. But as soon as I got into the forest, the speedometer fluctuated wildly even though I was riding a steady pace. I am guessing this means it lost its satellite lock and if so then it probably wasn't tracking my position. But um, I bought it to keep from getting lost on mountain bike rides so if it doesn't work in the trees, it's useless. I contacted Garmin tech support and am awaiting a response. I suspect this is just the way the unit works. Do all GPS cyclocomputers have this problem?

so simple!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

easy to use! tiny! works with strava! way more accurate than the ipod app! i got hit by a car and it survived the wreckage with only cosmetic damage. to stop it from more damage i started carrying it in my bag instead of on my bike but then i lost it when it fell out of the pocket. i'm going to buy a replacement because it's awesome.

Great for the Basics

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been very happy with the Edge 200. I have done the heart rate and cadence thing, and am over it. This unit does the basics and does them pretty well. The two things that would make this unit better, or make you look at a different unit, would be if it linked to two satellite systems and used a more advanced altimeter system. I've only lost contact a few times and that's been either on the side of a mountain or in dense forest. As for the altimeter, it always shows different values for elevation gain and loss when starting and ending at the same exact spot, and the values aren't off by just a few feet. If I needed to replace this one, I would seriously consider spending extra for the 510, but am not motivated enough to ditch this one for it.

Does the Garmin Edge 200 come with an 'out front mount'? And second, does it (or can it) measure speed in kilometers per hour?

Hey Crooky,

The bike mount that comes with the Edge is designed to best fit the stem or handlebars and can measure in either miles or kilometers.

Pony up and get the Bar Fly to go with this (or any) of the Garmin units. The rubber band mount that comes with it is ok, but doesn't allow for any angle adjustment for better visibility. Also, it's easier to see the unit when it's in front of the stem instead of on it.

is it compatible with Apple?

is it compatible with Apple?

If you're asking whether it can be plugged into an Apple computer to upload data, then the answer is yes.

Yes, Garmin has done a good job with their apps for osx and ios.

Amazing nifty little gadget.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This thing has all the information that you need; no extra useless features, and no gimmicks. It'll show your speed, distance, time, GPS, etc. Just all the straight forward infos. The battery is great, it'll last you a serious amount of miles before it goes out. Also, please don't fall into buying the Front Mount Adapter. You don't need it! Everything you need are inside the box. The front mount will not improve your ride or your view, it'll just cost you more. Well I guess the only thing I wish this thing has, is a bluetooth capability. Just to simply sync it with my iPhone. But that's just me, overall it's a good buy.

Does it store and keep stored the total...

Does it store and keep stored the total distance performed with the bike? Like the overall miles counter in a car?

Best Answer

Yes, this product will keep your total miles on the bike like an odometer until it runs out of memory. That would be a lot of riding, you can always export the files to the Garmin app and clear the local memory.

What more do you need?

    Worth every penny, didn't think I'd ever buy a GPS but hats off to Garmin for making an affordable great computer: Light, easy to use, no cables, rechargeable, small, speed, calories (approx), elevation, downloadable, what's not to like.

    once connected to your computer will it show you the route you rode

    Best Answer

    Yes, as well as all sorts of data about your ride. You have the ability to access garmens online map system, which is like Google maps. You can plan out a route and send it to your device, and it just tells you where to go.

    This is a really sweet product.
